I am Eiji Amano, the Managing Director of Yakult Danone India Pvt Ltd. It gives me immense pleasure to introduce myself and share the company’s mission and philosophy. I am delighted to be in India for my second assignment, almost 17 years later. I was one of the founder members for establishing Yakult Danone India in 2006 and still remember those days, when not many people were aware about probiotics, and its health benefits.
Today, I am delighted to witness a sea change in people’s perception about Yakult, and how they have embraced it as a part of their daily diet. Believe me the number of regular consumers in India, is beyond my expectations. It is very heartening to see that Indians are becoming more and more health conscious, and understanding the importance of gut health, which was highly ignored in the past. Today, we know that digestive/gut health is responsible for our overall health and well-being.
In line with our Founder Dr. Minoru Shirota’s vision, of providing health and happiness to people around the world, our company’s mission is to realize his vision by providing a high quality, scientifically proven, probiotic product – Yakult, for the overall health and well-being of the society.
Yakult, which originated in Japan nearly 90 years ago, remains a frontrunner in the probiotic category. It is available in 40 countries and regions across the globe, and more than 40 million people consume it every day, for better digestion and immunity, which helps them to stay healthy and protected.
I believe Yakult is a perfect fit for the Indian community, and I am confident that Yakult will help you achieve your health goals and lead a fulfilling life. At Yakult, my team and I stand committed to providing you good health, the probiotic way.
I am excited to deliver this promise to the people of India and align with the Government’s health mission of combatting the triple burden of nutrition by improving gut health.
Thank you once again for believing in Yakult and we look forward to serving you in the future.
